eBook Description:

3D Printing with Fusion 360: Improve your Autodesk Fusion competence around 3D printing workflows by learning how to repair broken STLs, design for additive manufacturing, position and support parts, and slice them

As 3D printing gains traction, the demand for CAD experts in manufacturing grows. If you’re a fan of Autodesk Fusion and crave hands-on experience with automated modeling, generative design, and the full potential of additive manufacturing, this book is your guide to elevating your design and 3D printing skills.

In this book, you’ll learn how to open CAD or Mesh files in Fusion and expertly repair, edit, and prepare them for 3D printing. You’ll unlock the secrets of effective print preparation, learning about print settings, support structures, and part orientation. This book also highlights Fusion’s diverse preferences designed specifically for additive manufacturing.

Subsequent chapters will guide you in choosing the right part orientation and position, as well as creating suitable support structures based on your chosen printing technology. You’ll simulate the printing process to detect and remedy common print failures associated with the metal powder bed fusion process. Finally, you’ll leverage templates and scripts to automate routine tasks around print preparation.

  • Use Autodesk Fusion to open, inspect, repair, and edit externally created designs for 3D printing
  • Set up your 3D prints for different printing technologies, such as FFF, SLA/DLP, SLS, and MPBF
  • Use templates to automate your additive operations, including part orientation, arrangement, and support
  • Run process simulation for metal powder bed fusion and learn how to compensate for common print failure modes
  • Optimize Fusion 360’s preferences for 3D printing
  • Export machine-specific file formats for 3D printing, such as G-Code, SLI, SLC, and CLI

By the end of this 3D Printing with Fusion 360 book, you’ll be armed with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness the power of Fusion for additive manufacturing, meeting the growing demand with confidence.
